In defence of dragons

liberation is life

With all due respect to Judy Horacek, I don’t think she has been paying attention. Knights or princes never proved themselves to young women by killing dragons, and nor have men solved problems for us – beyond those of their creation. Therefore, feminism does not consist of women now “solving our problems so men don’t have to”. And nor would young, wooed women do arse-witted things like slaying the dragons that had been keeping the men harassing them occupied.

As those of us who paid attention to these fairy-tales know – those dragons were our friends. Lilith-sent. They could be relied upon to distract our stalkers for a good ten years and, with any luck, eat them.

Let’s not be distracted by liberal feminism and its diversions of quick “equality” fixes which involve our taking on what we’ve been told are men’s roles.

We end up killing our friends.
